This Saturday the majority of the of the PeerFly team and I will by flying to New York to attend Affiliate Summit East (ASE12). Affiliate Summit is always a lot of fun and New York is a great place to visit so I am really looking forward to it. Plus, we’re flying in a day early and staying a day after the conference so I am hoping to get an opportunity to check out the sights, including the Statue of Liberty. The thing I am looking forward to most though is probably the Affiliate Ball.
The Affiliate Ball is the official party of ASE12. I have been to a few of the Affiliate Ball parties over the past few years including the first one that was ever held, but this one should be a little different. In Vegas at ASW12 Darren, the creator and promoter of Affiliate Ball, was able to get Nelly to perform. It was pretty cool. This time, Ice-T and Coco will be hosting the party! It’s being held at the Copacabana on August 13th. PeerFly is a platinum sponsor, which means we get a VIP table on the rooftop. They’re also going to be giving out some awards called the AFFY Awards. I doubt I will get an AFFY, but from what I have heard they will be giving them out to important people throughout the industry. Whether or not I get an AFFY, my goal of the party is to get a picture with Ice-T. My wife and I watch Law & Order: Special Victims Unit all the time and I think Ice-T is hilarious. Speaking of Affiliate Summit awards, I got an email the other day that this blog was chosen as one of the top Affiliate Marketing Blogs in 2012! I’ll post more about that once an official announcement is made :)
Another reason I am excited for the Affiliate Ball is because a local artist will be performing, Trayne. I have heard some of his music and had an opportunity to meet him so I am really happy he’ll be there and can’t wait to hear him live.
If you are planning to go to Affiliate Summit, make sure to get in touch with me so I can get you a VIP pass! I’d love to have a drink and talk about ways we can make more money together.
